Coarse companies with over 5000 employees are clearly over the average with 90% multi-cloud use. For example, a survey participant cited by hashicorp said that certain cloud providers allowed experimenting with emerging technologies, while the company uses a different provider for the main burden.

Rust scores in particular with safe storage management and avoiding race conditions, without pubes during performance. This makes it recommended under other for system-related and parallel software development.

Almost equal, but with a clear distance to rust, follow second place and three of the top 10 programming languages in the stack overflow survey typescript and python.

Microsoft: Data of European companies and agitators remain on EU servers

Microsoft reacts to privacy concerns in europe and wants to save and process data from some european customers in the eu. This should ensure that the european data protection basic ordinance intervenes when replacing data. "We will not post your data outside the eu", customer microsoft prasident brad smith on a blog entry.

Background: the data transfer between the eu and the us can be legally risky. The reason for this is ineffective privacy-shield and safe-harbor agreements. These were the main legal bases for the data transfer, which the european court of justice has now tilted. There are not new legal bases yet.

Microsoft and Docker want to provide containers together in Azure

Microsoft and docker sell a new partnership. The focus is on the docker desktop to bring to microsoft azure and the visual studio products.

Docker desktop brings tools, functions and command line services that allow it to determine azure natively as a context. This allows containers in the cloud export. According to the examination, few commands range to take off containers in azure containers. Developers can use this product integration to create azure container instances (aci) and thus work without orchestration in isolated containers.

Docker desktop brings usable standard tools

For illustration, the following example serves from the article on the microsoft azure blog. It is easy to see on the transmission control protocol (tcp) based python game server application, which is already created on the local developer calculator with docker desktop and run. The application depends on a slim version of linux and other dependencies in requirements.Txt. The docker tools extension integrated in visual studio code allows easy commands builds and runs to docker desktop as well as a push to a private container registry in docker hub. The new 2-version of the windows subsytems for linux (wsl2) should be easier to implement.
